Ok, I know I’m repeating myself but again, plaided/checked shirts, and I wanna wear them ala Dries in all colours! I’ve dug out old favourites from my wardrobe but they don’t have the right fit as I like it a little oversized and wear it unbuttoned here and there. MiH usually have really lovely plaided shirts in store, like this one above. And when I stopped by to have a look on their SS13 collections a few weeks ago I spotted many of them in even fresher colours with pop’s of pastells, something to keep in mind come spring…..
Back in the end of July I did a job for InStyle Germany in Paris, and I had so much fun on the day working with such pro’s. The fully 8 pages “A walk in the Parka”-spread is now out in the November issue, photographed by Max von Treu, styled by Anneke Krieglsteiner, and Ben Mayer on hair&make-up. Perhaps not the way you’re used to seeing me, but oh it’s refreshing stepping out of the comfort zone from time to time!
Wanna indulge yourself a 2.5 minute beautiful visual injection? Then enjoy this short film, episode three, ‘La Métamorphose’ by Dior!
I’m doing just like Victoria Beckham and swearing to this oil blend by Elemis during my pregnancy. After trying different oils out there this one’s a clear favourite, it’s not too strong on the nose and sinks into skin very quickly, hopefully it will prevent skin damages, crossing my fingers…..
Aahh, this weekend passed on too quickly, I’ve hardly started on my-to-do-list, and honestly it wasn’t so long to begin with. I guess the darker chillier rainy days start to get to me. However, we’ve had a few glimpses of clear skies this week and I made sure to be out there soaking it up leaving my heavier winter gear at home.
Joseph is one of my absolute favourite stores and brands in London and good news is that they will finally launch an e-comm any day now in October. The entire Joseph collection and a great selection of some of my favourite designers will be available for worldwide sales, yeah!
Not that I ever play any, so lets call it wishful thinking…..
However, lets say that was the case, and after booking a holiday somewhere warm and luxurious for my whole family, I would’ve clicked home these beauties with express delivery for tomorrow morning. And then worn the whole outfit topped with the oversized black wool blazer from Margiela’s collaboration with H&M, for my lunch appointment tomorrow noon, all black with flats is just what I feel like right now.
As I often look like this on busy days I’m in a hurry or on the run I might as well include it here, flats, jeans and a good knit, nothing special at all, perhaps an overdose of greys, but on some days that does it for me!

I wasn’t too found of some of Balmain SS13 80-90′s power-suit-women marching down the runway, with shoulder paddings out of this world, but I absolutely loved their hair. I used to wear this kind of not-so-perfect-braided-hair as a kid, and now I feel tempted to give it another go, with a pair of cool earrings, denim, leather, or a cozy knit, it’s so fresh!
Green is one of my favourite colours, all shades included, so you can imagine my attraction to this woman’s outfit back in Paris was pretty obvious, I mean green and Proenza Schouler in one, couldn’t be any better. This gorgeous collarless tweed jacket from Proenza Schouler’s pre-fall 2012 collection has long time been sold out, but you’ll find the skirt here, though in orange/pink.
…. I’m gonna wear my new feather padded snow parka by Acne, in other words, I’ve got no intentions of freezing during the winter months ahead. These “typical-Scandinavian-style” coats are selling rapidly, and if you wanna lay your hands on one yourself you’ll find them here, yours for £560.
Happy Monday noon out there, hope your weekend turned out all fabulous!!!
On my side it’s been cozy, still embracing relaxing weekend-time after fashion month and chilled around and about in West London, late brunches and a little shopping. As we’re heading towards chillier days and I’ve been stocking up a little with wool pieces in my wardrobe, like this LBD in wool by IRO that I got while in Paris. Suddenly this classic, comfortable little piece has become my new wardrobe favourite, and if I was a little lazier I would probably slipped it on every morning.
Either you’re a true Isabel Marant girl at heart or usually like parts of Marant’s collections, I’m sure you’ll find pieces in the “hawaiian-Elvis”-inspired SS13 collection qualifying for your spring-wish-list. We all know that the most coveted Marant pieces usually fly off the shelves, especially the shoes. But if you want to make sure to lay you’re hands on your favourite runway pieces you can pre-order at Moda Operandi right now until 11pm (EDT) 18th of October. My favourites are the brown studded high heel sandals, shown above in white, and the gorgeous blouse worn by Aymeline Valade, mmmm…..
If you haven’t seen the great Miu Miu SS13 collection yet, here’s the full show. Except for the beautiful items and girls walking up and down the runway (and stairs!), the show really is a pleasure for the eye, the music, setting and collection coming together creating a very sophisticated cool magic moment. Happy Friday morning out there!
